I love having “no-cook” recipes in the freezer, such as the salmon and crayfish pasta bag, as they make life that little bit easier.

Being able to defrost and cook a meal without having to worry about heading to the shops to buy the bits and bobs you need means after a long day at work you can put your feet up rather than slaving over a hot stove.

You’ve earned it!

This fish chowder only takes ten minutes to prepare

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes

You need:

  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 115g frozen diced onions 
  • 1½ heaped tablespoons plain flour 
  • 1 litre fish stock (use 2 stock cubes)
  • 500g baby new potatoes
  • 300ml milk 
  • 120ml double cream 
  • 600g fresh fish pie mix 
  • Handful of fresh or dried dill (optional)


  1. Add your oil to a pan and, once hot, add the onions to soften.
  2. Next add the flour to help thicken the soup.
  3. Then add your stock into the pan and keep the heat on high.
  4. Add your chopped baby new potatoes to the stock and allow them to cook for 10-12 minutes or until the potatoes begin to soften.
  5. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Once the potatoes are cooked, turn the heat down to a simmer and add the milk, cream, fish mix and dill, if using (fresh or dried both work).
  7. Allow the chowder to cook for 5-6 minutes or until you feel the fish is cooked through.

Ready to freeze: Allow the chowder to cool and put it in a labelled, sealable freezer bag or soup bag, and add it to your freezer.

Ready to eat: Simply defrost the chowder in the fridge overnight, then heat in a pan over a medium heat until piping hot. This can also be heated in the microwave until piping hot. Serve with crusty bread or cheese scones.
